4th Year Studio

Fall 2018

Interior.jpg

My final project for a material dynamics studio. This is a double skin façade that uses plants to affect the humidity and air quality inside and outside the building. The vents can switch directions and control where the humidity goes, making the room feel warmer in the winter or cooler in the summer. When the system is facing outside, the plants absorb the carbon dioxide from the city air, reducing the heat island effect and helping combat climate change. The sliding door allows people to get to the plants and allows for vertical gardens.
